Thanks.

Out of interest, when the performers get paid for their time, is that Disney’s broadway division paying them to be there or is it Parks & Resorts?

Just curious, if I want the magnets for me and my family but don't want to park and walk into the park, can I drop off a family member with everyone's wristbands and photo IDs and have that person get all of the magnets and leave the park? .

That’s a question for WDW but my gut answer is “no.” “Must be present to claim” is likely their response. Otherwise they would have a rush of people claiming on behalf of many others causing the stock to run out.

That's worked for me with the last two magnets, but I assume it's at the discretion of the castmember.

It may be a stretch but never hurts to ask. if any AP have no interest in the magnet but wouldn't mind picking on up I'd love one for my collection. I get all the AP magnets [that I can anyway] and collect figment stuff too. best of both worlds! I even have an extra Donald AP magnet if anyone wants a trade ;)

Have you seen any Disney on Broadway shows while the Original Broadway Cast was still performing?
I recognized a few, I saw Aton fitzgerald White when he was Mufasa in The lion king and Kerry Butler when she was Belle.
I would love it if they could have gotten James Monroe Iglehart, lol I think he's kick Robin Williams out of my head for Genie. I did see him in Hamilton though, he plays Thomas Jefferson.

Yeah, and he still is in Hamilton, so he’s busy. He was wonderful as Genie. Seeing Hamilton in March and I imagine he’s still going to be on.

Lower your expectations. He's good in those roles, but not show-stopping good. I blame the music assigned to those roles.

I thought he was fabulous in Alladin, he definitely had the better role.
I agree with you on Hamilton but then Jefferson is not a huge part which is probably why they split it with Marquis de lafayette.

I work at MouseGear and it really depends on the castmember. The only rule is one magnet per passholder.

I'll have a parent come in with cards for the whole family and that is fine (as long as you have valid proof of being a passholder).
If a CM says, "Go for it", that works for me. Even if my original hunch was "No", without knowing the opinion of a CM, better to ask forgiveness than permission, I say.
